Position ID:Duke-Physics-PAHARAVIFARD [#8913]
Position Title: Postdoctoral Associate
Position Type:Postdoctoral
Position Location:Durham, North Carolina 27708, United States [map]

Position Description:    

The physics department at Duke University is seeking to make two postdoctoral research associate appointments in experimental condensed matter physics in the area of correlated electron systems. Candidates with experience in x-ray and neutron scattering techniques and material design/synthesis are particularly encouraged to apply. Successful candidates are expected to perform sample synthesis/single crystal growth and characterization measurements at Duke University. X-ray and neutron scattering experiments will be conducted at the national and international user facilities. Experiments under extreme sample environments will be conducted in collaboration with the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory. These positions are one-year appointments with the possibility of renewal for up to two additional years.

Applicants for both positions should hold a PhD in condensed matter physics, solid state chemistry, or experimental materials science. Background in x-ray/neutron scattering techniques, coding programs and computational modeling of physical systems, sample synthesis and crystal growth, extreme sample environments: cryogenics, high magnetic field and/or high pressure setups, is a plus.

Applications should include a CV, list of publications, a statement of research interests, and three letters of reference. Review of applications will begin March 20, 2017, however, the positions will remain open until filled.

Questions regarding this position can be directed to Prof. Sara Haravifard (
